defensively when he was asked about not spending enough time with members of congress, he said now that his girls are getting this old, they're not going to want to be around him very much so noul now he'll have more time. but the truth is, they are becoming adolescents and that presents a lot of other challenges. but it is remarkable how ba ram and michel barack and michelle obama have kept these kids so normal. we think back to hillary clinton asked jackie kenly onassis for advice and keep them out of the public eye. that worked so successfully with her. and there's the transition here. i was really struck by the fact that susan eisenhower as a grandchild was writing in the "washington post" last week that she had secret service protection and she was objecting because she said the children go through a lot of change and it isn't easy to be the child or the grandchild of the president of the united states. but these girls have done it remarkably with these parents. >> they are so beautiful and so poised. malia is 14 these days, a freshman in high school. sasha is 11 and in sixth grade. an
based on the weather and based on the other defense. i will also just say this parade is a little bit different from what he might see at the macy's day parade. folks don't stop in front of the reviewing stand to do something this is a moving parade and there's too elements important for planning purposes for the media that will be covering that there is obviously the presidential lefcourt, the colonel discussed it goes with the limo down pennsylvania avenue to the white house. there is a short break after that before the parade begins. it's about 20 minutes. this is so the individuals, president, first family can come back out to the stand and be positioned for the first elements of the military and civilian units that are moved by the standard. >> [inaudible] >> you can probably speak to that the best to read >> as you can imagine for the participants in the parade with approximately 10,000 participants, it is a huge physical demands that happens. primero the staging is going to happen at the pentagon parking lot. they will go through secret service screening and security screens co
to actually accomplish thing, james? >> i think there are a couple things. you take what the defense gives you as a president. obviously the economy to contend with, gun control. i think immigration will be able to get worked into this. i think the administration has the to sort of wrap its arms around the combination of what happens in life around the world and what they want to try to get done. when they overlap. i do believe this administration was interested in gun control or commonsense gun safety even without a newtown massacre. when they overlap, you have to push hard and use the political will of an administration to get things done. >> if you want to call it a honeymoon period, people say as long as two years and other mrs. cynical say we're going to give him 100 day, re-evaluate and see how much capital he has. >> i would give him act six to eight months to get things in congress. after that people will be starting to think about the midterm elections. even democrats will have to go back to their districts and -- if they cast too many votes that take risk for the president, they won'
